Diegos offers something no other spot on the waterfront can…affordable food right on the wharf. There are plenty of mid to high range restaurants in the wharf area serving fine food, but at twice the cost. The downside, if you can call it that, is that one must make reservations or the wait can be considerable, especially during the busy... More

We waited an hour and a half while many tables were empty with "reserved" signs on them for over a half hour. All in all the good was good and our time at the bar waiting for our table was great with good drinks/apps and awesome bar staff.

Went to Diego's for my birthday dinner and was not disappointed! I am a guacamole nut and there's was one of the best I've ever had! Great drinks and great dinner! I had the pork tacos - fantastic! Great location right in the middle of everything on the wharf. Fun music and people watching! Can't wait to come back someday!

The best Sangria's in town. Sunday Brunch is excellent. So happy to hear they are adding a second floor.

I admit i was a little lost when I looked at the menu being used to typical chain Mexican restaurants. Our sever was helpful guiding us to a few great choices and we were not disappointed! Great flavors.

Tried this place out on this surprisingly warm day in Feb. The 1/2 the restaurant has plastic walls, small black round metal tables & Polaroid pictures all over the bar area. I had the Guacamole Del Mar, which was in a lava rock type bowl & was delicious. It mixed seafood with the Guacamole. It was served with tortilla chips.... More

I had been to Diego's before, and brought my BF. We made reservations in advance- which I highly recommend. The drinks are delicious and they had a great special beer that was delectable. We devoured the guacamole which was really good. My BF even insisted on getting a side of it afterwards. The food was great and we had the... More
